One more sleep

Til the babe's birthday.
I recently met Leah at Kirsty's HAC session and on perusing her blog found a little Russian doll was the motif of choice for her little girl when she recently turned one.

Leah kindly said I could 'adopt' her idea if I wanted to, so on the weekend I made a shirt for the little miss to wear tomorrow - the actual day of her birthday.
Because my machine sewing in the contrast colour looked seriously crap on the small letters, I opted for some hand sewing in front of the telly on Friday night with a friend.

Wonder how long it will take for it to get covered in cake?
Thanks Leah for your great idea!

It is gorgeous - what a great idea. I think it will take five seconds before being caked!

Hope her day is special and that the shirt is soakable. Could I please have permission to adopt this motif for my soon to be 2yr old...might have to come up with a boy version for the twin brother.

Tomorrow will be a very special day, the marking of the milestone 1st Birthday and what a beautiful little top your little girl will have to celebrate this wondrous occasion! Can't wait to see her in it! Happy 1st Birthday for tomorrow! Going to be a memorable day :)

The top is perfect Karen. The handsewing was a great idea. I hope your baby girl has a great first birthday.
